Grace Humility Jesus Shame

The grace to recognize ourselves as sinners

By on September 2, 2020

Jesus is there, his hand extended, ready to reach out to us and pull us out of the mud, out of sin, out of the abyss of evil into which we have fallen. We need only be conscious of our state, be honest with ourselves, and not lick our wounds. We need to ask for the grace to recognize ourselves as sinners. The more we acknowledge that we are in need, the more shame and humility we feel, the sooner we will feel his embrace of grace.
– Pope Francis, The Name of God Is Mercy
